What is a Skin

Cabinet skins are thin vinyl coverings with an adhesive backing that comes in the style and color of the kitchen cabinet to which it is applied. Skins are produced in a wide range of colors and styles, ranging from white to grey, as well as different stains of wood. To match the various colors of wood cabinets with a cabinet skin, manufacturers take photographs of wood scenes and print that picture onto the vinyl skin that is then adhered to the cabinet box. Adding a cabinet skin cleans up the cabinet from daily wear and tear that may have occurred, while also providing a fresh look as well as an added layer of protection on the outside of the cabinet.
